War means people die.

This well-written book is by John B. Kane, a Doughboy who served in the US Army's Graves Registration Service in France, 1917-1919. They made sure burials were correctly recorded, cemeteries plotted and that the remains of deceased Doughboys were treated respectfully. What's fascinating is that he wrote the book in 1940 as a memoir for his daughter. His first-hand accounts are interspersed with philosophical, poignant observations seasoned with advice and a clear love for his young daughter. Just like the Doughboys in "Glimpses From The Great War," Kane tells an engrossing story from the common Soldier's point of view.
